Gemma Collins 'begs I’m A Celebrity bosses for another shot on the show' after quitting in 2014

The GC only lasted three days

Gemma Collins reportedly wants another shot at I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here after she dramatically quit after just three days.

The TV star was briefly part of the 2014 jungle line-up when Carl Fogarty was crowned the winner. Following her departure, show bosses said Gemma had decided "jungle life is not for her".

But it looks like Gemma has had a change of heart and is now ready to embrace jungle life.

According to Mirror Online, Gemma told Keith Lemon during the filming of Celebrity Juice that she had contacted ITV producers to ask if they'd give her another chance.

The publication reports the TOWIE star said: "They told me, 'The magic wouldn't be there because you've already been in', and I said, 'Honey, if I'm in there, I'll bring the magic'."
